What if our Founding Fathers just said “I’m personally opposed, but . . .”

Editor’s note. This first appeared several years ago. I trust you will enjoy it as much as I do.

“Of course I care, but it’s not my problem.”

What if the members of the 1776 Continental Congress had said that in response to the struggles of the American colonies under British rule?  What if they had just shrugged and returned to their busy lives?

Thankfully, they didn’t.

They declared freedom from the bonds of oppression. They founded a nation on the idea that “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness”.

Think about what those words mean this weekend, because in the half-hour you spend watching a fireworks display, about sixty babies will be aborted in the U.S. They will never experience life, let alone liberty or the pursuit of happiness.

This weekend, we celebrate the moment our Founding Fathers united to fight injustice perpetuated by their own government.  But what about the injustice that continues today? Each year, abortion violently deprives more than a million human beings of the “unalienable Rights” that our government was founded to protect.  It’s not enough to care about the issue—every American needs to take action!

As we work together to protect innocent human lives, we know that when enough Americans unite to defend the rights of the unborn, the results will be nothing less than revolutionary!
